Steve, who is also musical curator of the festival, explained the make-up of his band, saying, "I've put together a real dream team of some of the best artists and session musicians in the business that I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with including Toby Chapman who has worked with everyone from Tom Jones to Kylie to Rod Stewart on keyboards, James Stevenson on guitar who was in The Cult, Chelsea and Generation X, Steve 'Smiley' Barnard from The Alarm and Robbie Williams on drums, Chris Constantinou who worked with Adam Ant and Sabrina Winters from Stereoblonde on backing vocals.
"We're going to do a really upbeat and varied set of stuff from a few Spandau songs to some of the anthems that inspired me growing up."
The festival will have two live stages featuring more than 30 artists, a locally sourced gourmet food village and a dedicated real ale area.
Tickets are priced at £59.50 for a day ticket.
